Deltamarin Snags Bulk Carrier Design Deal

Friday, November 18, 2011
Deltamarin has signed an agreement with Tianjin Xingang Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Co., Ltd., part of CSIC Group for the design of four very low fuel consumption Handysize Bulk Carriers to be built for M.T. Maritime Management Group / Strategic Shipping Inc. Deltamarin will take care of the Basic and Detail designs of the vessels as well as of Technical Procurement handling. Deltamarin will also have a site team to take the design to production. This is the second order for the B.Delta37 standard bulk carriers, which have evoked the interest of the market with their improved deadweight, cubic capacity and especially the extremely low fuel consumption compared to other available designs.  
The overall vessel length will be below 180 x 30m, with a service speed at design draft of 14 knots. The deadweight is 40,000 metric tons at scantling draught. The vessels will have five cargo holds and can take 50,000 cu. m. of cargo. Deltamarin has focused on fuel efficiency, sustainability and safety during the concept development process, while simultaneously focusing on the cost efficiency of the concept. E.g. the model tested daily fuel oil consumption at design draft is only 18t including 15% seamargin, ISO condition, and annual output of CO2 is estimated to be reduced by 5,000 tonnes compared to existing vessels of same size range. 
The first B.Delta37 standard designs are being built for the French shipowners Louis Dreyfus Armateurs also at Tianjin Xingang shipyard. Derivative designs of B.Delta are currently under construction at Nantong Mingde Heavy Industry  (Laker Bulk Carriers and Self Unloaders) and at Chengxi Shipyard (Panamax Self Unloaders), part of CSSC Group.
